I’m a printmaker who rarely makes editions, working through variations in series, in artist’s books, or in multiple-print installations. Using faces and figure shapes, I layer pattern and color to create visually exciting monoprints that suggest dual concepts of individuality versus anonymity, absence versus presence, and concealing versus revealing.
